The Macnab is a traditional challenge dating back many centuries. It was considered to be the ultimate test of a sportsman's abilities as it tested him in all 3 of the facets a passionate sportsman might face - Hunting, Wingshooting as well as Fishing. The challenge was to have success in all 3 between sunrise and sunset. Here in South Africa, honouring that age old tradition, the Royal Macnab has been created. This incorporates the 3 species in South Africa most difficult to harvest in the toughest terrain you can find yourself in. One is required to hunt either a Mountain Reedbuck or a Vaal Rhebok, shoot a brace of Greywing over Enlish Pointers and then finally catch a wild trout on fly fishing equipment all between sunrise and sunset. This is a truly incredible challenge to undertake and one shouldnt be surprised to run into snow up in these mountains where you can find yourself at over 9000ft above sea level! Upon succesfully completing the challenge a certficate is issued. Due to the free range nature of this hunting area it is only a 3 month long hunting season for the Macnab attempts as well as normal hunting.

Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
